Buffalo, New York native Marlene Witnauer holds a Bachelor of Music degree from the Eastman School of Music in flute performance and literature and a Master's of Music from State University of New York at Buffalo.
Highly regarded as a flutist and master teacher, Witnauer's style combines the influence of such notable flutists as Joseph Mariano, Sir James Galway, Samuel Baron, Walfrid Kujala and Bonita Boyd. She has performed extensively with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra and has been a frequent soloist with the Ars Nova Chamber Orchestra.
Her chamber music collaborations include performances with the New Buffalo Woodwind Quintet, the Western New York Chamber Players and the eclectic ensemble, Musica Reservata. Ms. Witnauer's marriage of intuition and interpretation has been enthusiastically received in her many solo recitals throughout western New York, both on stage and radio.
Witnauer is currently a faculty member at State University of New York at Fredonia and Buffalo State College.
